UFC Quick Quote: Brandon Vera wants Rampage and everyone else

brandon vera

"It's my one-year goal — to win both titles. I'll fight anyone UFC wants me to fight. I'm not scared of anyone. I train ridiculously hard for all my fights. I drive myself to the point of exhaustion. In the past, I've collapsed in the gym. When I'm training for a fight, I work out thrice a day from six to eight weeks. Each day, I do 50 minutes of conditioning, including working six six-minute rounds, then 1 1/2 hours of repetition drills and finally, 1 1/2 hours of doing whatever my coaches want, like sparring or banging the bag or hitting the mitts.... After I get the heavyweight belt, I'm going after Rampage (light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson). I've already challenged Rampage. We've agreed that whoever wins will buy a car of his opponent's choice but the plate will show the word ‘loser.' I wouldn't like to drive a Lamborghini with ‘loser' on the plate so I don't intend to lose.. I've trained with Rampage and he's tough. But when the title's on the line, it's anything goes in the UFC."

-- Heavyweight contender Brandon Vera tells the Philippine Star that he plans to win the division title and then take on UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, claiming both title at the same time. "The Truth" will have to first take out Fabricio Werdum at UFC 85 at the O2 Arena in London, England, on June 7.
